Eat as much fairy bread as you like on fairy bread day!
I don’t know about the rest of the world, but Fairy Bread is a staple for any kid’s party in Australia.
In fact, did you know that there is actually a fairy bread day here in Australia?
I’m not kidding. It’s that popular!
November 24th every year is dedicated to fairy bread day. It’s the one day of the year that mom’s can feed their kids fairy bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner without feeling guilty.
It’s fairy bread day, so who is going to argue!
Now, believe it or not, fairy bread is not something that came naturally to me. You see, I grew up in England and I had never heard of fairy bread, let alone tasted it. In fact, it wasn’t exactly a food combination that I would ever have thought of trying.
But, I had to come on board as fairy bread is kind of an Australian tradition and if my kids were going to live here, well we had to get with the groove!
So if you like me have never tried it, then I would SERIOUSLY recommend you do.
It may not seem like the logical choice at the time, but trust me, the kids will totally thank you for it.
What Exactly Is Fairy Bread?
The fairy bread recipe really is very simple.
You will need the following:
- White bread
- Margarine or butter
- 100’s and 1000’s or sprinkles!!
Simple grab your bread, cover it with margarine and then throw the sprinkles on top. That’s it, your done.
As far as kid’s party food goes, it doesn’t get much more simple than this.
Typically the bread is cut into squares or triangles, but you certainly don’t need to be limited to that and you can be as creative as you like.
Get Creative With Your Styling Of The Fairy Bread
If you have a cookie cutter handy, why not use this to cut out the bread shapes.
There seem to be cookie cutters for every occasion so you should easily be able to find a cutter that will fit into your chosen kid’s party theme.
Tip: Before you cut out the shapes, butter the whole slice of bread first. Otherwise it can become quite fiddly trying to butter the individual shapes!
Alternatively if you don’t want to mess around with different shapes, you could roll them into small wheels.
This will make them look a bit different and it wouldn’t matter what party theme you are having.
If you havn’t given fairy bread a try at your kids party, now may be the time to change that.
It is seriously the easiest kids party food that you will come across. And besides, they will totally love it.
It’s super easy to change up a little bit too. If you would like to try fairy bread with a difference, you could try nutella fairy bread. In essence it’s exactly the same, but instead of using butter you use nutella. Double yum.
